Sorry I am not very tech saavy. I am around wifi all the time, does that mean I can use that instead of paying for the $30 data package? I would probably still get the cheaper one as a back up - or is the term wifi different than computers?
I would really only use the data for syncing my work calendar that i upload to google & very seldom I will check emails.
How do you get a cell phone to connect to wifi? Is it the same as my laptop - turn it on and it finds it? Does it have to be paired like I do with my blue tooth?
Yes, your phone connects to WiFi the same way your laptop does. Turn on your WiFi radio and have your phone search for a signal, if needed enter the proper password and then your phone will connect.
